Economic analysis and research

Marine and coastal economic research

We have produced and commissioned a number of reports on economic issues relating to coastal and marine environments, including studies of the impacts and values of marine park establishment, management and use.

We are also in the process of finalising a number of internal reports on coastal and marine-related issues (including marine parks). These reports are still in the draft report stage, and have not yet been peer reviewed. Once these reports have been reviewed, the finalised reports will be published on the website.
